In the suburbs of Antwerp, unlock the secrets of Antwerp’s former defenses. Stroll along on the idyllic path around the moat of the fort and enjoy its picturesque which will bring you back to its 19th century origins.
Step back in history! The days of stronghold strategy might be over, but you can still see this awesome fortress located in Antwerp’s suburb, Edegem. Antwerp used to have eight fortresses surrounding the whole city to defend it and they were all connected by one hell of a city wall.
The highlight of the park is really its small walking path that goes along the moat on the inside of the park. Be sure to check this out, only walkers are allowed here and it's a bit of a tight squeeze. You'll pass through the outside of the fort gates and get some cool shots.
This place is especially great for the kiddos as you can wander through the gates of the fort, check out the playground and there are play stations scattered throughout the park, including a tree house, a large round swing, etc. Bonus - there's a long slide they're sure to love as well.
For all you runners, there's also an outdoor gym station with one activity per station as you run along. Good luck jumping on those monkey bars!
